Faith Day 2 Activity 2 Summer learing journey:

2 Reasons why I think that we shouldn’t ban bullfighting.

Reason 1:
I think that we should keep bullfighting in spain because it is a traditional sport from spain and it has been around for years so I think that we should encourage it more.

Reason 2:
I think that we should keep bullfighting because if they taught others how to bullfight then bullfighting could be a popular sport and it could be known as the official spanish sport.

  1. Kia ora Faith,

    I really liked your answers. It is clear that you read the description of the question very thoroughly and made your decision based on that.

    However, I'm not sure if you know what really happens in bull fighting. You might only know what happens in the cartoons (which is totally okay).

    It is hard to explain because we would never have something like that here. In New Zealand, when we get meat, we put the animal down as quickly as possible so it feels as little fear or pain as possible. In bull fighting, the matador does dance with the bull, like we see in the cartoons, but once the bull is tired, he hurts it with swords until it passes away, which is something we don't see in the cartoons.

    Now that you know this, do you think it is still okay?

    I found this question very interesting, and actually one of the other students came up with a very impressive answer about how if 70% of Spanish people think that it should stay a national sport, why should the rest of the world interfere?

    Please reply to my comment and let me know what you think. There's no right or wrong answer, because a very popular cultural tradition is involved here.

    Great work!

    Take care,
